It's tough being small, and even tougher for a spider who was born with only six legs. Spinne has worked to learn that being different is a good thing. 
Until now, Spinne the Spider has lived a life full of adventures. This encounter is anything but fun. Spinne has heard her mom talk about bullies, but before today she had not encountered one in person. 
What is the proper way to handle a bully? Should she ignore the situation and walk away, or is there something else she should do? Dealing with a bully is not fun, but sometimes you don't have a choice.
